This upcoming Thanksgiving weekend, the new and improved Hollywood Fantasy League (HFL) will be inaugurated. Combining the fun of assembling your dream cast of actors with the added dimension of following their career paths over the course of a year, the HFL will be a fun and competitive way to have a vested interest in what is happening in Hollywood day in and day out.
If you have previously participated in any of our first three Hollywood Fantasy Draft, then you already know that you will be drafting a cast of actors as well as a director. The added twist is that there will be a competitive purpose beyond simply assembling your favorite set of thespians. Was your actor selected for a starring role in the next Christopher Nolan mega-blockbuster? Did your director receive a Golden Globe for his latest film? Did one of your actresses get thrown in jail with a DWI? You will score and/or lose points for each of these events and many more.
How To Play
For those of you who are new to this, playing in the HFL is as easy and simple as it gets. In essence, each participant gets to draft (e.g. select) an actor/director when it is their turn. If you would like to get a simple example of a fantasy draft, visit the first edition of our Hollywood Fantasy Draft.
The team with the highest point total at the end of the year wins. League scoring will be applied via a comprehensive set of rules that will seek to determine how “successful” an actor/director is throughout the season.
